Two Aztec Birds Blank card

This stamp perplexes me. What occasion would you use it for? It has an Azteklook to me but; ll look it up.

It is copper heat embossed and layered on top of black cardstock and then a brown with orange undertones. That paper was cut with the decorative scissors. It resembles the edge of a stamp.
This not my style but I loved bringing it together for the inspiration daily challenge at

For the rest of the card;
I used Deep Red Stamps Camouflage background stamp with distress ink by Ranger. Honestly, I was playing around that day. I wanted to know how this cardstock would hold up with all of the liquid being placed on it. sprayed it with water. used st\amps by 
The dry embossing folder, I'm guessing Darice

Thanks for looking

I know I've talked about her before but I want to give her a shout out. There was this woman that moved into assisted living and I received some of her supplies, which were 95% Christmas stamps and then some parts and pieces, like the own above,  They graciously gave me so many wonderful stamps. I was delighted to take them to make homes for every single stamp.

Of course, good deals aren't magically delivered to you unless you have a BIL like mine who just happened to be in Detroit that day- on moving day. I think he may have been the hero that mentioned my name to take to stamps. Aww.
He drives a Corvette and so whatever could in the Vette' he would bring home. A nice story that I will want to remember
 So when there's apart from her creations I will and I have, let you know that she gets the credit.
I'm also going to find out her name.

Heart Hello Card. in purple

The sentiment stamp is by Fiskars. The purple ink is by Stampin' Up. The die-cut is by Spellbinders and I put purple eyelets in the holes at each end.

The large heart dies I bought off eBay.
The one on the left is glitter cardstock by Die Cuts with a View, which has been a disappointment. The 4x6 glitter paper pad that I own is showing deterioration with the edges curling and changing colors on the backside that wraps around to the front. I've used those papers in my scrapbooks. Bummer. Has any else had that problem with glitter paper?

The small heart die is by Lawn Fawn and I cut it out of purple foam. Hopefully, it doesn't get torn off in the mail.

The patterned paper is by Creative Memories. It is so old but it fits these hearts. Sometimes random pieces in my craft room find each other to come together to make this beautiful card.

Anniversary Heart Card

This is a beautiful heart stamp that was tucked away in my friend’s stash. What a treat it was to find it.
I colored the rubber with different colors of distress markers and then huffed on the stamp.
I was able to stamp it twice by huffing on it after the first stamp and stamping it again.

 The first time was vibrant, like what you see here. The second-generation stamped image was lighter and just as pretty. The second one hasn't been made into a card yet. 
The polka dot patterned paper is by Jillibean Soup
The background cardstock is from my stash. I have lots of scraps that I'm trying to use.

Scraps, ribbon and eyelets/brads are on my use it or lose it list for 2020.

5 Valentine Cards

Last year a friend and I made a bunch of twisted easel cards for the seniors at my mom's assisted living center. The twisted easel part was wasted for they didn't know what to do with it. 
From that project, I have leftover easel cards and the 4x4 card fronts.
Since they were in a basket waiting to be used I finished a few and redid a few by taking apart the easel to make the card fronts into cards that I will be able to use. 
I included the original photo of the card below the redo.

This first card was a leftover square that never made it onto an easel card.
Patterned paper by DCWV and K and Co.
Die cuts by Spellbinders, which has eyelets at each end and the sentiment stamp by TPC Studio 
Circle die cut by Elle’s Studio 
Black ribbon on the left and then layers of cardstock
The card’s base is having a hard time supporting the weight

The next card is a strange combo of colors. 
Heart stamp with rose design in the the center is by Stamp N Plus
The patterned paper is by Studio Calico
The heart die cut from eBay
I used a yellow heart eyelet in the center

This next three cards were easy to redo once I removed the 4x4 square off of the easel card, I backed them onto a card base with something new behind it.
This one, I layered a pink cardstock that was dry embossed with hearts.

This one, red cardstock underneath. 

And lastly, once this 4x4 card front was ready for redo, I positioned a tape with a lace design down the center of an off white card base and taped the square on top. 
It’s a great anniversary card.

Thanks for looking.

XOXO Cricut card

This Cricut card is super cute. I remember cutting it out but I didn’t put it together. Freebies are limited time offers. When I found the bag with the pieces, I was pleased to find all of the o’s that go inside of the O’s.
I had intentions of making another card to use the left over x’s but instead I had a bunch of red paper X’s and hearts scattered all over my floor. They vacuumed up nicely. ;)
The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts.

Tesa Tape Inc supplies tape to my husband's Science Olympiad group and he needed a thank you card for their donation.

That piece went on a large card base.
